Welcome New Family Member

To understand how wonderous the world can be and how great is God's love, you only have to look at a child. 

On Monday December 21, we welcomed Braeden Cole Shadrick into our loving family.  We were blessed that he is a healthy bouncing baby and that both he and Mom are doing great.  I have had the opportunity to be present during the births of all my Grandbabes, with the exception of Connor who was delivered by C-section.  I am so thankful for these memories and for being right there with my beautiful daughters during such a monumental event....I even got to cut the cord for this birth....go me!!

B. is my little Christmas present and I'm already doing my arm exercises today, so that I have the strength to keep up with all the hugs and kisses that I will be bestowing and receiving from my 4 Grandbabes during the upcoming Holiday weekend.  Please forgive me if you see me this week and have to shield your eyes, but I just can't stop smiling. 
All the best,

Pin It!
